Pain is truth …

Pain is truth; all else is subject to doubt.

One thought on “Pain is truth …

  1. Oh, I don’t know. Sometimes the most “true” moments I experience are those moments where all around me is transcended and I feel just joy. I would like to choose the joy as the route more than the pain — seems like a better way all ’round.
